CC Sabathia
Chad Billingsley
Justin Verlander

Joe Saunders
Jon Lester
Tommy Hanson
Cris Carpenter

Jonathan Broxton

Staff 2
Johan Santana
Tim Lincecum
Roy Halladay

Cliff Lee
Dice-K Matsuzaka
Armando Galarrga
Ricky Nolasco
Ervin Santana (DL)

Jonathan Papelbon
Mariano Rivera

Assuming you need all your SPs, the obvious choice to me is Marmol, just because he will be in an uphill battle for the CL job with Regg, and now will have to compete with Smardzja as well.

Of your starters, I like Buehrle the least (that's just a personal bias). He pitches to contact too much, when his team scores a bunch of runs, he's the type of pitcher who has no problem giving up 6 ER to win 9-6. He'll get his wins, but I just don't like him.

In my opinion, all the rest of your pitchers are either in their prime (Burnett and Haren), or on the upswing (Lester, Cain, Rodriguez)

2nd one. If the Braves call up Hansen though, that could really help. To bad the management is waiting till June, but if Jo Jo keeps pitching the way he has been, it could be sooner. A lot sooner.

the 2nd set of pitchers is better.

For you drop question, I am a White Sox fan so its easy to admit that Buerhle is the worst of that group. He is not a strikeout pitcher and those guys have a hard time getting out of jams.

But you also have possibilties to drop a reliever. The question I have been really thinking over lately is that I think a top level middle reliever is better than a bottom of the barrel closer like Morrow. Something to consider.

please help with my thread http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=384579
